About the owner: Owner is a well known safari legend who still travels to Tanzania, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana and South Africa with friends and clients over the past 40 years. He grew up in Kenya and worked and became a director of the Kerr and Downey Safari company, and then trans-located to northern Botswana to start his own safari business. A Very shy and quiet man who loves nature and has varied interests. He loves to collect sculptures, bronzes and artwork from artists around Africa. He feels that the house needs people to be in it and as he still travels on safari the house often is empty for months on end.
Why the Owner Chose Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe:
This house borders on the National Park where there are many passing elephant on a daily basis. It has a comfortable size pool and the gardens 2 acres - big and rolling. When the falls are in flood the spray from them - come down to the house in a fine spray - keeping the garden moist and watered. The house has a quiet and healing atmosphere to it. Each room has its own veranda to relax and contemplate how the day has gone - or gather around the pub - and share and compare the day's activities.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sirlson House is a home - furnished for comfort and space of 430 square metres. Plenty of space with three lounges to spread yourself and your family/friends around. The home backs onto the national park - so often elephants walk past and many times we see buffalo at the back gate. Warthog are often grazing on the front lawn and all animals live peacefully with the residents of Victoria Falls.
